Sen. Patrick Leahy Questions Why Bush Administration Allowed 9/11 to Happen
“A Total Rollback Of Everything This Country Has Stood For”: Sen. Patrick Leahy Blasts Congressional Approval of Detainee Bill - democracynow.org
I caught this interview with Senator Patrick Leahy on Friday regarding the approval of the new detainee bill. At one point in the show Amy Goodman asks Leahy how anything would be different if the democrats were back in power since some of them actually voted for the detainee bill. In response to this question Leahy points out that at least then questions would be rasied, and he made the following very interesting statement:
The two questions that the congress will not ask, because republicans wont allow it, is why did 9/11 happen on George Bush's watch when he had clear warnings that it was going to happen? Why did they allow it to happen? And secondly, when they had Osama Bin Laden cornered why didnt they get him? Had there been an independent congress, one that could ask questions these questions would have been asked years ago..
